Apple Announces OS X El Capitan

Apple is adding new gestures to the Mac that lets you do things like jiggle you mouse cursor to make it larger. The idea being able to jiggle our mouse to find our cursor, so making it temporarily larger will make it easier to find. I can see myself liking that now that I’m over 40. El Capitan includes improvements for running apps in full screen mode, and also offers a split view for working with two app windows in full screen mode at the same time.

Safari can now “Pin” sites in the toolbar, kind of like little bookmarks, by just dragging them to the left. You can even see what tabs have audio playing in the background and mute them from within Safari.

Spotlight in El Capitan will dig deep into not just the computer but into the web.  You can even type out a though for searching, as an example, “show me pictures from June last year when I was in Indianapolis”  and it finds it!

While there was no exact release date, there will be a free upgrade coming this fall.  No announcement telling us what Macs will support the software.
